Summary: I invested in the VuPoint Magic Wand with display thinking I would revolutionize the way I check out textbooks- but it's SO aggravating. You have to be very steady and practice a great deal in order to obtain the perfect scan.
Summary: A very cool thing to have until I got an 8mp camera. Super touchy, though. Any deviation in speed or angle, which totally happens all the time, resulted in skewed, warped images.
